Year 2020

Covid 19 Since June 2, 2020 , the Croix Glorieuse site has been open at the usual times, but with restrictions to comply with government health regulations (distances to be kept, masks recommended for groups, etc.).

The pilgrimage on March 28 and 29, 2020, did not take place, but over a hundred well-known people from all over the country were able to pray at 3 p.m. in association with M.H., who represented us at La Butte.
The site was closed during the spring confinement and reopened in May 2020, so the March 28 pilgrimage did not take place. The September 14 pilgrimage for the Feast of the Glorious Cross took place, while the November 22 pilgrimage for the Feast of Christ the King did not take place due to confinement.
